Seasonal Samplers Series

Learn about the Seasonal Sampler Series.  Starting in June 2020, each Saturday a new video will be released.

Seasonal Samplers Intro

While making each Seasonal Sampler “Quiltini” (little quilt), you’ll learn different quilting skills – from confident beginner to intermediate. At the end of this series, you’ll be ready to conquer more advanced projects AND you’ll have a year’s worth of wall hangings that can be interchanged on the quilted “frame”.

You’ll find the handouts/supply lists at YouTube under each video. Hope you enjoy this project!
